only 35% of barack obama's vote came from white christians of various kinds. he put together, that's important that he still needed that 35% to win the election. the catholic vote was very important in states like ohio. on the other hand this was the first presidential campaign where you really saw a candidate aggressively using a pro-choice position to win votes. usually democrats have been careful and a bit defensive about that. it is the first campaign where a vote for gay marriage clearly didn't hurt and may have even helped obama in some states. so i think we saw a seed change. >> there was a time when all of us were saying, wow, what are the evangelicals and others going to do with a mormon candidate? and it wasn't an issue. >> i think that's heartening us for us as a country. no matter where you stood in the election, there wasn't a lot of expression of anti-mormon feeling on any side. and i don't even think, as far as i could tell, not even covert campaigns on this. and as we said before, white evangelicals said they wouldn't vote for a mormon. guess what, they did vote for a

division of power, obama and the white house, democrats in control of the senate and republicans in the house. but appearances can be deceiving and in this case they are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama, almost like the parliamentary party, was not rewarding and taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reported. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition, so i think that was an important change that creates a new dynamic, not that it's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the camp liar and washington making nice to one another, but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein.
